Senior Lecturer for the NHS Psychotherapeutic Counselling training programme (PCE-CfD)

Senior Lecturer for the NHS Psychotherapeutic Counselling training PG Diploma programme (PCE-CfD)

This is a senior lecturer role for this exciting new training programme, launched by Health Education England (HEE) to offer a three-year salaried and funded training pathway for trainee psychotherapeutic counsellors to work in NHS Talking Therapies services to deliver PCE-CfD therapeutic services for adults with depression. Metanoia Institute is the training provider for this new training pathway which will exist alongside and add to other existing routes for counsellors to enter and work in the NHS.

This is a historic moment for counselling training in the UK. This development has the potential to open up who can train as a counsellor and play a part in the development of a diverse and representative counselling workforce supporting equality, diversity and inclusion both in use of NHS Talking Therapies (IAPT) services and within the counselling profession itself.

Metanoia Institute is a dynamic forward-looking higher education establishment with a student complement of over 1000. All of the Institute’s fourteen-degree programmes are registered with the Office for Students and two thirds of the students are enrolled on post-graduate programmes. The Institute is recognised as one of the most successful higher education providers for counselling and psychotherapy in the UK.

We welcome applications for a Senior Lecturer in Counselling and Psychotherapy to join this exciting programme and the innovative and creative community of academics and students that make up the Faculty of Applied Social and Organisational Sciences at Metanoia Institute. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to our Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression (PCE-CfD) training and join the well-established programmes in Counselling and Psychotherapy at Metanoia Institute.

The successful applicant will be able to operate effectively as part of a team of academic and administrative colleagues to facilitate learning to the highest quality through teaching, administration and academic support.

They will have expertise and experience in working therapeutically with adults and the ability to offer excellent teaching and pedagogy to support the development of therapeutic knowledge and skills.

We are looking for candidates who are passionate about education, able to initiate and develop ideas and opportunities in teaching and learning and with the ability to provide clinical supervision and support to trainees' work at placement. You will be an excellent communicator with the ability to deliver teaching excellence and a track record or a rising trajectory of professional practice. We are especially interested in candidates with expertise and experience of applying PCE-CfD in the NHS and IAPT services.

Metanoia Institute is committed to delivering outstanding student outcomes and making a positive impact on society through its nationally and internationally renowned training and community-based research and knowledge exchange.

The Institute is committed to a supportive and safe learning and working environment that is equitable, diverse and inclusive, based on mutual respect and trust.
